Global Fund Strategy Development

Global Fund Strategy Development

The Global Fund has launched a process to develop its new Strategy, which will formally take effect in 2023. GFAN and its partners believe that the voices, priorities and needs of civil society, communities and key populations around the world must be heard during the process and reflected in final Strategy for it to be as successful as possible in leaving no one behind in HIV, TB and malaria responses everywhere.

The Global Fund We Still Want

As the process for the Global Fund Strategy Development Process winds down, Board Members and Strategy Committee Members will be making decisions on the final strategy.

If you would like to ensure that the voices of civil society and communities are heard - you can use our tool kit that includes key messages, social media tools, and template letters .

If you are still looking to submit feedback, connect with the Communities Delegation or one of the two Civil Society Delegations with your input:
